Empowering and Informing our Learners
The experiences for Years 3 to 6 students are thoughtfully crafted to cater to the unique needs of each learner, aiming to challenge and stretch their capabilities while offering support when required.
Academic and Inquiry Learning
Strong literacy and numeracy skills equip students with the essential tools to comprehend complex information, communicate effectively, and make informed decisions, empowering them to succeed in both their academic and real-world endeavors.
Active, inquiry learning is a feature of our programs, allowing for integration of curricula to foster deep and authentic understanding, whilst developing dispositions, such as grit, perseverance, critical and creative thinking.
Perth College also offers Learning Engagement programs for students who require support or extension.
